But we would then be back to the first (simple) scenario, where we have
an obsolete update needing to be cleaned, right? My concern is with
updated packages appearing in updates-testing, then "disappearing"
because they were considered broken, since those might stick around for
a while on many systems, not a good thing since bug reports might be
filed against the package long after it has disappeared.
